Find Out What District Your New Lee County Home is Located In

Ask your real estate agent what fire district or town the property resides in.  If there's a particular home that you're considering, you can go directly to the Lee County Tax Records site.  

The chart below shows the 2017 Lee County property tax rates.  If you are relocating to a home inside a town or fire district, the tax rate will generally be higher.  If your new home will be outside of town boundaries, the tax rate can be extremely low.

What will I actually pay in Sanford property taxes?

The Lee County property tax chart is not as confusing as it looks.  The tax rates are always based on the assessed value of the home, not the asking price, so you'll want to look up the assessed value, or ask your agent for it. 

  1. Take the assessed value of the property.
  2. Divide by 100.
  3. Multiply by the combined 2017 tax rate.
  4. This will give you the yearly tax amount, per 2017 fiscal year rates. For Sanford, the combined rate is 1.395.

And just to give you an idea, here's a table of sample yearly tax payments for different sample assessed home values.
